Our favourite books: by Jenny Valentine

I met Jenny Valentine when we both worked in Sesame, a lovely wholefood shop in Primrose Hill, London. (Courtney, you know it well!!) Jenny is now a very talented writer, and writes books for children. For her first novel and best-known work, Finding Violet Park (HarperCollins, 2007), she won the annual Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, a once-in-a-lifetime book award judged by a panel of British children’s writers.

She has also written another titles like “Broken Soup” or “The Ant Colony”. Also the short stories about two sisters “Iggy and me”. We have the whole collection (4 books) and we really really enjoy reading them. They are so much fun.

Jenny is married to singer songwriter Alex Valentine, and lives in Wales with their 2 children. And I am so happy for her with her success!!!!
